This May, HM157 will be hosting some classes through community organization, Trade School LA. If you are interested in taking classes, or teaching classes, you should reach out to TSLA!
Trade School is a non-traditional, open-to-everyone "school" which runs on barter instead of money. There are Trade Schools happening in over 50 cities throughout the world, but this will be LA's first. The motto is "Barter for Knowledge" and it will be a place for people to learn, a place for people to share their knowledge & skills, and a place to enrich peoples' sense of community and social exchange in LA.
A full month of classes will run this May. Classes are typically 1.5 hours and will be held at a variety of locations throughout LA, including HM157! Class subject matter will cover a huge range of topics, from cooking to design, from fitness to music improv. Confused about how bartering for classes works?
